Hi my friend,

I hope this post finds you having a great day. Isn’t it wild how connected we can be, even if we’ve never met in real life? Since starting my Youtube channel in 2009, I have interacted with subscribers from ALL over the world. Over the years, I’ve connected with people in Sweden, Dubai, South East Asia…. everywhere! It’s so cool to develop a relationship and hear that my work has made a difference in the lives of others. Since filming my first “Advanced Chair Cardio Workout”, I’ve gotten emails from many subscribers asking for more. People everywhere are loving Chair Cardio! That’s because you can actually get a great weight burning cardio workout while sitting on a chair. Don’t laugh, it’s true! Chair Cardio routines are an incredible low-impact exercise option with a variety of health benefits. Read on to learn more, press play, and sit to get fit with me.

What Is Chair Cardio?

Chair Cardio is an excellent, non-weight bearing exercise option that can be done at home or at the gym. If injury, disability, illness, or weight problems have limited your mobility, Chair Cardio is a way you can still exercise to boost your mood, ease depression, relieve stress and anxiety, enhance your self-esteem, and improve your whole outlook on life. While there are challenges that come with having mobility issues, by adopting a creative approach, you can overcome any physical limitations and find enjoyable ways to get active and improve your health and well-being.

Who Can Do Chair Cardio?

Chair Cardio is a workout that can benefit anyone, no matter what their age or fitness ability. Because all exercises are performed while seated, Chair Cardio is perfect for beginners, people who are overweight, children, and people with lower body injuries/pain (including knees, feet, ankles, lower back etc.). Chair cardio exercises will work your total body without putting any pressure on your joints. You will feel your arms, legs, lungs, and abs work while you work your cardiovascular system.

What are the Benefits of Chair Cardio?

Increased cardiovascular fitness
Improved muscular endurance
A positive mindset (you get that from all my workouts right?)

Sounds fun?! I know! I’m ready to GO. The below challenging Chair Cardio workout will get your heart rate up, make you work up a sweat, and help you feel alive again! YOU MUST be cleared by your doctor before starting this or any exercise routine. Preview the workout in advance to make sure it is a smart choice for you, listen to your body and modify as needed. Be sure to perform Chair Cardio workouts on a sturdy chair and use a pillow as a cushion under your hips for extra support.

I hope this video served as a reminder that with a positive mindset and a little determination, you can make your goals happen.

    You are just the cutest thing! Thanks so much for this video! I had two knee surgeries this year and I kept telling everyone, including myself, that I couldn't work out anymore because I couldn't do yoga. I had an epiphany that I CAN work out and began looking for videos like yours. You made me laugh all the way through and I'm going to share you with my facebook friends, some of whom are as broke down physically as I am. Hopefully, they will sit down, sit up, work out and refuse to quit! Thanks again!

    Caroline, thank you so much for your video. You put out such positive energy, both in the exercises and the commentary. You have been such a great force both times I've injured my ankle. I can't thank you enough.

  3. Noemi

    Thank you so much for this! I got foot injury lately and I was pretty active before that. I'm happy that I found this because I can do cardio without using my foot which is amazing 🙂 and I'm really sweating! Never give up.

  4. Natalie Rose

    Caroline, this workout is fun and you make it feel like I'm in the room and we're all together. Thank you! Your joy and care is so heartfelt and radiant. I feel so supported and care for! My toe is healing from a break and I found this workout to be a great one for me to do right now. Keep up the amazing work! You inspire me!!

  5. Olivia McDaniel

    I had bunion surgery and have found this video amazing. I used a one pound weight to make it a bit harder.

  6. Sheila Maier

    I found your videos after having foot surgery. I love I can do these after sitting at a desk all day. Thank you for doing these!!

  7. Katarzyna Toporek

    It's been 2 weeks since my acl reconstruction and my right knee is still immobilized, but I keep excersising with my left leg only and it's a good feeling to be doing something. Thank you, Caroline 🙂

  8. Charlotte Ingebretson

    Thank you for this video! I've really been having a hard time lately and normally I work out to destress but I broke my foot a few weeks ago and I can't tell you what it means to me to be able to get a good workout in. This is the hardest chair cardio I've done yet and your relentless optimism is so sooooo nice right now

  9. Jayne

    Whew! What a workout!! I hurt my calf muscle a few days ago while exercising and I found your chair workouts to do while I recover. I thought that this would be easy because it’s seated but NOPE! You can bet I was panting and sweating! You have such a great personality and you can tell that you were meant for doing this. 🙂 even after I recover from my injury I think I’ll still come back to your videos just cause I like them (and you) so much! 😀

  10. Sharon Rhodes

    So so so grateful for these videos. I hurt my foot almost three months ago and, since starting your videos a week ago I'm finally starting to feel like myself again. I really think you're right, I'll be stronger when this is all said and done! And thank you for telling me to smile, I kind of hate it, and then, 10 seconds into a fake smile it becomes a real smile 🙂

    Hey Caroline, found your videos through a Facebook group for a condition called Hallux Rigidus (basically arthritis of the big toe joint). I've been a distance runner for 15 years and I surf every single day, but with this condition, running has been more and more painful, so I finally got surgery on my toe to clear out the arthritis. I started researching how to stay fit during recovery and found your videos and started them 48 hours after surgery and have been doing them every day, doubling up on them to get a longer workout.

    Thanks so much for helping folks who can't get on their feet due to injury, surgery, disability, etc. to feel like we're getting something done and feeling good about it! A great service you are doing here! Keep it up!

    I recently had foot surgery and I am diabetic, and keeping me active was of my concern, until I found your chair cardio videos. These videos should keep me in check.
    Love your videos and I thank you for teaching these routines.

  13. Sarah Berner

    Thank you so much! I just found out I have a sesamoid fracture and was so worried about staying active: this is perfect!
